It appears you are the only one who has answered my question. I will assume the other

email has been lost. Therefore, I am putting together the transom assembly with the manual lift mechanism and am struggling with the correct installation procedure. Can you assist me?

Marine Mechanic: Jeff G., Marine Mechanic replied 8 years ago
Should be able to. Let me know exactly what you need and the manufacturer and all the pertinent information and we can go from there.
